We like to encourage businesses, keep businesses here, and make sure they are supported by the county. That’s pretty much why we decided to partner with the HIA.
Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) June 02, 2013
On June 2, online marketing company fishbat recaps the HIA Trade Show in Brentwood, NY last week and cites how important the event was for Long Island businesses.
In the latest edition of “fishbat Splash,” hosts Scott Darrohn and Gabrielle Giuffrida explore the Hauppauge Industrial Association (HIA)’s annual trade show. The trade show showcased about 375 businesses and hosted over 4,500 attendees in an attempt to give Long Island business owners a chance to connect and learn more about how they can prosper. The trade show also hosted several seminars, which educated business owners on new methods of promotion and advertising.
In the video, HIA Business Development Manager Sara Hundertmark says the event was created to unite companies and local associations and create programs that improve the future of the Long Island business community.
“From the lunch program that we had, and our major sponsor, the Suffolk County IDA, we’re really creating programs for companies to grow here on Long Island and stay here on Long Island,” Hundertmark says. “That’s really the basis of who we are here at the HIA and that’s what this whole premise is about.”
The video showcases a few of the biggest sponsors, including first-time sponsor, Suffolk County IDA.
“We’re promoting business within Suffolk County,” says Amy Illardo, an IDA marketing associate. “We like to encourage businesses, keep businesses here, and make sure they are supported by the county. That’s pretty much why we decided to partner with the HIA.”
Both Darrohn and Giuffrida say they are excited for next year and plan on attending the event again. “It was a great show and we are hoping to be back next year.”
